    Car Rental Japan

    Rent a Car in JapanDiverse doesn't really begin to describe the unique island nation on Japan. One might think of the bustling and innovative city centers of Japan, but the reality is that 73% of Japan is pristine wilderness. Hop in a rental car and discover the tranquility of nature and the ancient Shinto or Buddhist temples, which dot the countryside. Whether you're going for business or pleasure, you won't find anywhere else in the world quite like Japan.

    Japan has one of the richest cultures anywhere on the earth. Museums in every major city offer visitors the chance to millennia-old works of art. Japan is known for its unique music, that uses alternate scaling and has had a large impact on western culture, and of course karaoke is the most famous cultural activity in Japan. As for food, you won't be let down. Japan has earned more stars from the Michelin Guide than the rest of the world combined! From watching a sumo match in Nagano, to eating fresh seafood in small towns and villages, there's no shortage of culture for you to become immersed in. Our travel checklist helps you prepare for your journey.

    IDP Requirements for US Drivers in Japan

    If you are traveling with your US license please be aware that Japan now requires an international driving permit (IDP) in addition to a valid US driver's license in order to rent and operate a vehicle. IDP's can be purchased for $20 in-person or via mail at a local AAA office prior to your departure, they must be purchased in the United States. Find more information on how to get an IDP for your upcoming trip by visiting our international driving permit FAQ page.

    See More with a Japan Rental Car

    What better way to experience this incredible country than with your own personal transportation? For example, a rental car in Kyoto or its railway station will grant you the ability to explore at your own pace and convenience as you make your way around the countryside and between major cities. Public transportation is well-established in all the major cities here, but you'll find that crowded buses and expensive taxi cab fares can quickly become far more of a headache and hassle than they help! Do yourself a favor and travel in comfort and privacy when you visit Japan so your trip can be everything you imagined it to be and more.

    Book a Rental Car in JapanOne can also pick-up their Tokyo car rental and begin their journey through the neon streets of one of the world's most technologically advanced metropolises. Indulge in fine dining beyond anything you'll find anywhere else or take a more humble approach to Japanese cuisine at any number of street vendors and small shops. When you feel like escaping the big city, your Japan rental car makes it easy to get out into the countryside around Odawara and Sapporo to see the dramatic mountains and ancient forests that await you. Visit ancient temples and sacred sites established thousands of years ago as you learn about the unique heritage of the nation.

    You'll have your work cut out for you in making the most of your trip to Japan, but a car rental will make it easier than you can imagine!
